IPL technology

Philips Lumea uses an innovative light-based technology called IPL (Intense Pulsed Light), derived from the technology used in professional beauty salons. Philips has adapted this technology for safe and effective use in the comfort of your own home. Philips worked closely with skin care experts to develop this technology, carrying out extensive consumer research on IPL technology with over 2000 women.

Five light energy settings

Philips Lumea has five adjustable light energy settings to ensure gentle but effective treatment. Used correctly, Philips Lumea's IPL treatment is safe and gentle to use even on sensitive skin and sensitive body areas.

Cordless convenience with no replacement parts needed

Lumea’s unique cordless design is perfect for treating the areas you want, when you want. Philips Lumea is a complete solution that comes ready to work right out of the box. More importantly, it does not require any replacement lamps or gels.

Fast treatment on legs with Slide and Flash mode

Lumea SC2006 has a wide treatment area with its body attachment that has a 4cm window. This enables fast treatment on large areas like legs, with treatment on 1 lower leg now taking just 8 minutes. Main application mode enables sliding motion for a more convenient and continuous application.

No replacement parts needed

Philips Lumea is a complete solution that comes ready to work straight out of the box. More importantly, it does not require any replacement lamps or gels.


Lumea is equipped with an integrated UV filter to protect your skin from UV light. It also has an integrated safety system to prevent unintentional flashing. Lumea SC2006 has a lifetime of 140,000 flashes, for endless use.

How does Philips Lumea prevent hair growth?

Gentle pulses of light are applied directly to the hair. The melanin in the hair and hair root absorbs the light pulses. This process results in the follicle going into a resting phase. The hair sheds naturally and regrowth is inhibited. A simple and gentle treatment once every two to four weeks will prevent hair roots from becoming active again and prevent new hair from growing back.

Five steps to everlasting smoothness:

1. Pre-shave the treatment area to ensure the light energy is channeled in the most efficient way to the follicle. This is only required for the first few treatments.

2. Consult the skin and hair type matrix and select the light intensity suitable for your skin tone and body hair colour.

3. Apply gentle pulses of light to the hair. The light produces heat in the hair, which is transferred to the hair follicle. This stimulates the hair follicle to go into a resting phase.

4. As a consequence, the hair sheds naturally and hair regrowth is inhibited.

5. To prevent hairs from growing back, the treatment must be repeated every two weeks (or every month for legs) which will progressively reduce hair regrowth to a minimum.

Is Lumea right for me?

Philips Lumea works effectively on (naturally) dark-blonde, brown and black hair. As with other light-based treatments. It is not suitable for (naturally) red, grey and light blonde hair or for very dark skin types. Please consult the comparison table to determine which light intensities are most suitable for your skin and body hair colour and to check if this method is suitable for you at all (if it is not, this is indicated with an x ).

Please note:

Unfortunately, Philips Lumea is not designed for everyone. If any of the following is true for you, then this appliance is not suitable for you to use.

  • If your natural hair colour in the treatment areas is light blonde, white, grey or red.
  • If you have naturally dark brown or very dark brown skin, you rarely or never get sunburnt and you tan very darkly. In this case you run a high risk of developing skin reactions such as strong redness, burns or discolouration when you use Philips Lumea.
  • Philips Lumea has been optimised for use by women but recent research showed that it can be used by men on most areas of the body, except the beard and scrotum.
  • There are medications and health conditions that may lead to adverse reactions when you use Philips Lumea.

Wonderful Wonderful product just preparing for my 5th session haven't shaved for 3weeks pleased to say Ive hardly any hair to shave might have less the 10 percent left . Amazing results if I'd gone to Salon I would with this result be delighted but broke ! Lovely to be able to do this myself my entire body takes about a 1/2 hour and Ive alway use a 5 setting it gives me the add ouch now and again but what a result , by far the best hair remover anyone could wish for , well I think so anyway . A must for a teenage daughter just wish I'd had one back then . 24 April 2016
Excellent! I bought this to get rid of the hair on my upper lip and after just two sessions the hair has vanished and not returned! I've started treatment on my legs and as the hair is a bit more stubborn, two sessions haven't shifted it but it is reducing. I will persevere! Somebody mentioned in a previous review that there was no flash and slide on this model but there definitely is, I've been using it on my legs. Overall its a great product and will save so much money in the long run compared to salon prices. I would highly recommend. 07 April 2016
